Just Friends

‘Just Friends’ was set up in September 2003   for the purpose of raising money for Sara and as opportunity to meet like minded people and make new friends.

We  get together for lunch, normally on the last Wednesday of the month. Venues are usually local restaurants in Puerto del Carmen, or nearby – but we also like to try other venues around the island !     Our lunches cost 20 euros and usually include a glass of wine – but most importantly, 5 euros per head goes to our funds. We also have raffles, with lots of donated prizes – these raise substantial additional income for us.

So far in 2014, we have had very well attended and successful lunches at the Zest Restaurant in the Costa Sal Complex in Matagorda, Los Marineros at the harbour in Puerto del Carmen and the Mirador De Las Salinas, near Yaiza.  Our fund-raising for the first 3 months of 2014 has totalled almost 1800 euros – a great start to the year. 
Our next lunch, on 30th April, is planned for L’Opera Restaurant in Playa Honda – this is a regular venue for Just Friends and is always very popular and an excellent lunch.

New friends are always welcome, so if you want to find out more, or come and join us, please email Elaine elaine@lanzarote4u.com or Pauline donalandpauline@gmail.com

In 2013, we had lunches in the following venues and raised   8500 euros for Sara, paid to them in October and December.  With your help and support, we can equal or even exceed that in 2014 - look forward to seeing you !!

“Just Friends” are a group of friends who meet up one a month, normally the last Wednesday of the month, for lunch at a local restaurant or hotel. We agree a fair price for a nice lunch with the venue, then add 5 euros to the price we all pay – the extra 5 euros is for SARA.

We also have raffles, “bring and buy” sales, sales of donated goods and often receive donations of small coins from residents and holiday guests.

Next meeting is Wednesday, 27th March, at 1pm Costa Calero Hotel, Puerto Calero, where we will enjoy the Buffet in the Poolside Restaurant. Cost as always, 20 euros,, which includes 5 euros for our funds.

In April - 24th April, we will have lunch at 1pm in the excellent Teguise restaurant, Cristobal.

We are always delighted to welcome new Friends , but It is imperative that reservations are made in advance, through Pauline - 669 33 22 63 or by email donalandpauline@gmail.com
